Co-op token scheme raises £500 for restoration
The East of England Co-op's community token scheme has boosted the Pavilion's restoration fund by £500 thanks to customers allocating tokens to the Theatre in store.
The tokens were available to allocate to a charity of the customer's choice for 3 months from December last year and has been a welcome sign of local support for the Theatre.
Reports of the Pavilion's token box 'overflowing' proved that local residents were happy to see restoration work finally underway for the 118 year old building, as Trustee Alex Youngs explains.
It really has been so rewarding for us to see how much the community wants the Pavilion to thrive and thrilled that we've been awarded £500 towards the restoration fund, so a massive thank you goes to the East of England Co-op and their customers.
Work has already been completed on the roof and replacement of the heating system is underway, with the next phase of work looking towards upgrading the toilets.
